Amaco Opalescent Glazes

(Image courtesy of Amaco.com)

Opalescent Glazes develop their greatest opalescence and most interesting textures when applied over red clay. Most of the AMACO® Opalescent Glazes have a high gloss similar to mother-of-pearl. Best results are achieved with three or four applications of glaze. On textured ware, the glaze flows thin on relief and thick in incised areas, illuminating dimension.

AMACO® Opalescent Glazes can be used very effectively in Raku firing. We suggest controlled experimentation with Opalescent glazes (for example O-42, O-23 at Cone 5, 2205°F, 1207°C). When fired at this temperature on the inside of a stoneware bowl, the glaze flows to produce a variegated bottom and thins at the rim to expose more of the clay body.

AMACO® Opalescent Glazes are supplied in liquid, ready-to-use form in pint jars. They are applied on a mature Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C) bisque by brushing, dipping, or pouring. On red bisque, these glazes should be applied rather heavily, and a slow rather than fast firing is best.  Recommended temperature is Cone 05 (1911°F, 1044°C).
